to meet with the president, anything from walmart to duke energy to ursula burns of xerox and nine others. they will gather up, they will huddle up and exchange ideas to try to find a fix for the fiscal cliff. the question is, how much is the president willing to give on spending cuts, how much is the gop willing to perhaps give on tax increases and revenue enhancements, and what will the ceos say, ask and demand? eamon javers here also at the white house as we have full team coverage and he has got the ceo part of the story. >> brian, i think one of the key questions going into this ceo meeting as we wait their arrival on the north lawn of the white house is how do these ceos react to the more than $1 trillion figure now that's been floated by the white house for new tax revenues, is that something that they find dismaying, that they feel like they can't even start the negotiations with a number that big? remember that the negotiations last year between boehner and obama really focused on $800 billion figure. now the white house is floating a much larger number. how do those ceos react?
